Whistler’s First Night has become legendary as a fabulous way to ring in the New Year with family and friends! This ‘come one come all’ event takes over Whistler Village once again this year as friends old and new celebrate one of the biggest events of the year. The celebrations take place in and around Whistler Village, especially the Village Square and Conference Centre as guests and locals bid farewell to 2010 and welcome 2011!
Bring the kids for an evening of fun in the streets with live performers, fancy fire dancers, creative comedians, rockin live music, unique lantern making, fun and crazy face painting and much much more! Then the adults can tuck their little ones into bed at one of the luxurious accommodations located in or near the square, while they ring in the New Year ‘grown up’ style! The champagne will be flowing (in the bars and private parties – the festival itself is alcohol free) and the crowd will be glowing!
The capable and friendly staff at the Whistler hotels take extra special care of children and pets, so the adults can have a worry free night of more fun and music! Right up to the magical midnight hour and beyond.
All of this with the glorious Whistler and Blackcomb Mountains as the back drop. Snow gently floating down to the streets as visions of skiing, snowboarding, dog sledding and sleigh rides bounce through your heads!
This is truly a night to remember. Ringing in the New Year at Whistler’s First Night could well be the most exceptional New Year’s Eve celebration you will ever experience!
